Lesson No.8 - Painting Cows

We are painting one cow at a time.  Starting with the darks, I filled in the large shadow areas, then added the highlights and feathered them off into each other for a soft muted look.  I can then re-darken, sharpen, highlight and detail where needed.  The legs were a bit tricky as they were hidden behind grass, so where it was a bit unclear in the photo, we put in long grass.
